Step by Step - lets simplify
the choices in the cabinet design.


First, Making the choice between
Framed Cabinets vs Frameless Cabinets

 

Framed cabinetry is traditional in American Cabinetry. These cabinets feature a frame - like a picture frame - that stabalizes the cabinet box, along with increasing the design possibilities.

 

With Frameless construction, the face frame is eliminated, maximizing access and storage space. Peak efficiency is achieved by including the industry's largest selection of high tech accessories and convienience cabinets.

Do It Yourself Cabinet Planning

Just show me a drawing of your kitchen or other project. The diagram is easy. All you need is a tape measure, a pencil or pen and the sinple layout grid to the right. Just be sure you get all the measurements written down. The rough drawing you do of your project space will look like below.

Measuring Your Kitchen Space:

  • Download graph paper to use for drawing your project. Two pieces are to the right.
    First is for the Layout of the room.
    Second is for the drawing of the walls
  • Work on the Layout View First.
    Measure all the walls. Start with the Sink Window Wall first. Start in the corner. Measure (in inches) to the edge of the window trim. Transfer to the Layout paper. Continue to measure to the next corner. Work clockwise, and record all measurement of the room, noting an "breaks" like the doors, offsets, windows, etc.
  • Windows and Doors: Measure from the outside of trim to outside of trim.
  • Note the center line of the plumbing under the sink measurement.
    Note the swing of the door by extending a line from the hinge side.
  • Next download the Walls Grid
  • Work on the sink wall first. Start in the corner. Measure (in inches) the ceiling height. Transfer to the Wall grid paper. Continue to measure to the next corner, noting the windows, sink / plumbing center line and any other details. Use one piece of paper for each wall.
  • Add the details, if you know them, of the cabinets. Where do you want drawers? How many Drawers? Height of the wall cabinets. Locations of appliances: Dish washer, refrigerator, stove.
